Shine A Light Night takes place this Friday 16th October 2020. We are asking the business community and people all over Ireland to sleep-out for one night to help raise vital funds for people experiencing homelessness.

2020 has been a difficult year for Focus Ireland’s front-line staff and the people we work with. The Coronavirus means people are more vulnerable and our vital services have had to adapt quickly to a 49% increase in demand. We anticipate demand for homeless services will continue to increase across 2020, as society begins to feel the economic impact of the virus. By sleeping out on Friday 16th October, you can help us reach more people this year. Together, with the support of Bord Gáis Energy, and your amazing fundraising, we’re aiming to raise €1.3 million in 2020 to support people experiencing homelessness in Ireland.

We have lots of different sleep-out options available – whether you are a business leader, an employee, or a member of the general public, we want you to sleep-out safely on Friday 16th October and help shine a light on homelessness.

Your safety is paramount. Given the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re working to ensure the safety of all participants and Focus Ireland staff. We are prepared to host a fully virtual Shine a Light Night should government guidelines suggest doing so. Learn more below about our socially distant sleep-outs!
